The desert always wins. This mailbox, proudly installed in 2003 on Cabinetlandia—a half-acre of scrubland purchased by the magazine the previous year outside Deming, New Mexico—had already been humbled by the desert by June 2010, when Cabinet contributors Melissa Dubbin and Aaron Davidson visited the site and documented the ruin.
